What a good daddy!
Director and comedian Kevin Smith had a comedy show lined up in Canada this Saturday, but after he learned that his daughter Harley made it to the finals in her Battle of the Bands competition… he CANCELLED his performance, so he can be at his child's talent show!!
"It is with a heavy heart that I announce the canceling of this weekend's SMorgy event. The blame for this lies solely with me… Saturday's cancellation is a bit of Jersey Girl coming back to haunt me: my daughter Harley entered a battle of the bands last week and has moved on to the finals. The show is this weekend - same time as SMorgy. Had I not been the guy who made Ben Affleck's character give up a great job opportunity just to see his daughter's school play, I wouldn't be making this call. But she's 13 years old, she's never played before a crowd this large, and I've only got one kid: if I miss this moment to tell d**k jokes with friends half a world away, I'm a bigger a**hole than if I cancel the event. So stuck between and rock and a hard place, I apologize - I gotta do the Dad thing here."
We completely understand where Kevin is coming from. Missing his teenager's performance would definitely be horrible.
And hopefully his fans can understand that because family should always come first!
Smith sure does have his priorities straight!!
